Kelsey has worked in animal shelters for years. Recently, she had met a very special cat in one of these shelters. The feline in question, responding to the name of Bruno, is blind and sick. He suffers in particular from feline infectious peritonitis, a serious viral disease.
Unlike many of his congeners supported by the association, he had not found a family and was staying at the shelter’s veterinary clinic where he received his treatments.
Kelsey had never considered adopting a cat, but that changed with Bruno. She had first welcomed him into her office, as she often did with other residents of the shelter.
” He kind of lived in my office and slept on my shoulders while I worked. […]. He was always in a good mood and loved everyone who came to see him “says the young woman to Farts Radar.
She got so attached to him that she ended up making the decision to adopt him. However, she had to take into account a very important parameter in her approach; his dog Ed. The 9-year-old didn’t get along very well with cats. Kelsey feared his reaction to the arrival of Bruno at home.
She gradually introduced them to each other, and was surprised by the positive reaction fromEd towards the new family member. A week later, ” they played together and became best friends says their owner.

“Bruno is Ed’s cat”
” I always say Ed is my dog and Bruno is Ed’s cat she jokes. Bruno has character, and despite being blind, he loves to run. He bumps, falls and gets up to continue his game, as if nothing had happened.
It has upset the perception that Kelsey had life with a cat. ” I never considered myself a cat person. I’ve worked in animal shelters for a decade and love cats, but I really had no idea they could have such a special connection to people. “, she confides on this subject.
